HFB Style Project: New York Dream Vacation

New York Dream Vacation

If I ever had the chance to go actually go on a vacation, I wouldn't be leaving the United States.  My pick would be New York.  Now obviously, in real life I would be on a budget.  But I'm gonna pretend that I have unlimited funds.  I would pack everything above and have the time of my life, thrift shopping in my Nike's, skinny jeans, and matching top.  Of course my camera will be with me at all times!  I can also pair up a few of these items to make different outfits of course!  Imagine the floral dress tucked into the print ankle pants with the pink heels, or the turquoise top tucked into the shorts with the heels OR the dress worn on its own with the pearl necklace and the heels and a wrist full of bangles!  The jumpsuit for a night or the dress-I need options people!  How would you pair up my picks?  What would you pack for your dream vacation?

If you haven't noticed I have a very broad interest in music.  I have always loved this song ever since it came out!  I didn't ever really pay attention to the words back then but I had always been able to relate in the way that it seemed to talk about a loss of some sort.  Gerard Way(the lead singer) wrote this song in memory of his grandmother and I am now dedicating it to my own grandmother on the approach of the 3rd anniversary of her death.  My grandmother was there for me in the last few years of her life when I felt the most dreadful loneliness.  I love her to pieces and after rediscovering this song on YouTube I couldn't hold back the tears.  Thanks grandma for sticking with me when everyone else turned their backs and tried to break my spirit!  You believed in me and you believed in us and we are still going strong!

"Can you hear me?
Are you near me?
Can we pretend
to leave and then
We'll meet again
when both our cars collide?"
-Gerard Way
